Mountain Home: Work Area

So it has been months since my last Mountain Home post, this is mainly because we didn't really get a chance to do much before we left on our road trip for the Documentary, and we have pretty much just settled back into the house. During our trip Will and I had some pretty grand ideas of what we wanted to do when we got back, and now that we are we finally found the time to at least do a couple of them. It has felt so nice, granted we still live in a very unfinished house, but it's ours and with every little improvement we do it feels more and more finished.
Just a couple of my prints/pictures I have started to hang.
The other day Will and I (mostly Will hehe) went to work on some left over wood we had and built my absolutely amazing work area! I finally have enough desk space for all of my little knickknacks and crafting goodies. One of the many things I love about Will is if you give him a piece of wood and a saw and he will make you twenty different things, it's wonderful. 
My little owls. If you couldn't tell I love owls (kind of like every other blogger it seems like).
My bookend is actually a globe ice cube holder, and it is probably the coolest gift I have ever recieved. You can't see it all that well in this picture but the handle is a rocket ship! I wish we lived closer to some friends so I could have get togethers and use it, but until they move to our mountain it will be the prettiest bookend ever. 

Have you guys done any home improvements lately?

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

  1. I love your book end ice holder, so cool! The rocket is just the perfect touch. I've said it before but I absolutely love your house! It's beautiful, and I love all the way you have decorated. I swear every blogger has a collection of owls - I've got 2 above my desk and I'm always looking for more xo

  5. Lovely. Our last home improvement was to install a shoe rack, makes our hallway and closets a whole lot tidier!

  7. I love the globe! Andy and I want a proper big globe-on-a-stand for our house but when we looked they were super expensive! I do have a giant atlas book that doesn't fit anywhere but is full of out of date maps.
